Tour is not that interesting - you get to look at the library, but only through a door. You can go up the tower and look at the views, but the stairs are very steep . It's ok, but not great. Takes about 45 minutes

I attended three concerts here and was blown away each time. I really LOVED the Mirror Chapel, exquisite performance space.

Ok, so this how you squeeze 8 pieces in 1 hour - you play it all very fast, even the adagio as presto, don't care at all about the music and you're done! It was tge lowest level of chamber music I've ever heard. Also,...More

We visited the four seasons concert in the chapel. This is definitely not worth the money. The ensemble does not know how to play together, but is more a one-woman-show of the first violinist, the second violin seems uninvolved and the overall impression of this...More

The guided tour is a joke. Not informative and they will not let you go inside the library. Absolutely not worth any money.

There is nothing to see here. The beautiful library can only be viewed through a narrow doorway and taking photos is banned. The view at the top is the only thing worthwhile, and there’s better views from other locations. The information provided in the tour...More

The Kementinum is a magnificent structure. We attended a wonderful concert in this great hall. The walls and ceiling are adorned with beautiful paintings, the acoustics are excellent, and all in all, it was a great experience.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

I suggest you buy the ticket on the door unless you think the concert is going to be sold out. I managed to negotiate a reduction on the price on the night, but this may be because there were plenty of seats available. The... More
